Today Gunnar Hökmark expressed regret and serious concern over the decision by the Georgian Supreme Court to grant ownership of the independent television channel Rustavi 2 to Kibar Khalvashi, a close associate of the Georgian government and of oligarch and former Prime Minister Bidzina Ivanishvili.

”The decision taken by the Supreme Court today is regrettable, and pose a serious threat to media plurality, editorial independence and transparent media in Georgia.
